Trustee’s Response To General Amherst And Barrier Free Access

This is a follow up to the previous post, Reader Asks About General Amherst And Barrier Free Access.

In an email to the PARC and school board trustee Ron Le Clair, I pointed out four references to the outdated “handicap” in the Review and that there is no mention of cost to ensure that GAHS is made barrier-free; I inquired if cost estimates would be obtained prior to a decision on the status of the school.

Trustee Ron Le Clair responded: “I agree with you that the terminology is outdated and should be amended to reflect more relevant terminology. I will forward your email to superintendent Awender, so he is aware of this issue.

As far as updating the accessibility of General Amherst, I am not aware of any estimates on this issue. I would expect any recommendations to maintain the school would include accessibility improvements in the total cost.

Should you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me.”
